12 oz bottle.
Clear amber body although a small bit of sediment was visible in the end of the pour. Weak white head.
Blueberry puree and baked blueberries dominate the aroma.
A near equal balance of blueberry and wheat in the flavor.
Light body with (too) light carbonation.
Overall: notably better than some other blueberry ales that are too sweet or completely dominated by blueberry flavor.

Assuming this is no longer a wheat beer, it pours a clear yellow/copper. Aroma is all blueberry. Flavor is a bit soda-like and blueberry flavored. This is drinkable but not great.

Clear deep gold with two fingers of white head that lasts about three minutes.
Smell is all blueberry. Maybe a touch of malt.
Taste is mostly blueberry. There is a bit of bready malt.
Mouthfeel is light with plenty of carbonation. Finish is light dry and sweet.
Nowhere on this label does it mention wheat.
Overall an pretty tasty fruit type beer.

After a long day of driving through potholes and attending various silly interviews for very bad jobs, I have returned home for a relaxing evening.

Appearance:
Body : pours a golden blonde with slight haze but mostly clarity. 10% opacity.
Head : tall and creamy to begin with, and then recedes to a small circle.

Smell.
Initial : Right off the bat blueberries invade the nose, reminding me of a dead-on comparison to my favorite cereal, Blueberry Frosted Mini Wheats.
With Agitation : not much room to agitate, but a maltier nose comes out along with more blueberry.

Taste.
Front : A beautiful blonde ale flavor, very beery, the malts and grains are very prominent here.
Back : By the time the beer hits the back of the palate, it morphs into a wonderful blueberry flavor with wheat, yeast, and lightly baked malts.
Finish : The wheat dries perfectly...I mean perfectly, and you're left with breaths of blueberry frosted mini wheats.

Feel.
Carbonated nicely to give it a pop and a perfect semi-dryness right at the end, giving it such an upper hand here.

Overall : A rating of "70" does not do this beer justice. Did I get an exception? Very well the best blueberry beer I have EVER had. Will be coming back for more.

Yellow beer, looked to professional to be a wheat and fruit beer. Should have some haze. Aroma didn't impart blueberry. Its a tough fruit in that regard though.

Tasted way too sweet. Sugar is not a substitute for fruit, nor wheat. Comes off just as much as an artificial soda flavor. Really comes off as no actual blueberries used in the recipe.
